Scientific World Stunned at Accuracy of Australian Aboriginal Legend

The scientific community is stunned by research which backs an Australian Aboriginal legend on how coastal palm trees got to Central Australia. Tasmanian ecologist Professor David Bowman did DNA tests on palm seeds from the outback, and his conclusion is startling :: Read the full article »»»»


Australian Researchers Throw Cold Water on Athletes Use of Ice Baths

Australian Researchers Throw Cold Water on Athletes Use of Ice BathsIce baths are not as effective as an active warm down in soothing athletes’ muscles, Queensland researchers have found.

The researchers have thrown cold water on the use of ice baths to soothe the overworked muscles of athletes.

According to conventional thinking, ice baths reduce inflammation and damage. however a joint study by the University of Queensland and Queensland University of Technology has found an active warm down is more effective in building muscle mass and strength.

The University of Queensland’s School of Human Movement’s Dr Llion Roberts tracked the progress of 21 men who did strength training two days a week for three months.

Half of them did an active warm down and the rest had a 10 minute ice bath at 10 degrees :: Read the full article »»»»


Scientists Discover New Volcanic Eruption Trigger

Posted: May 23rd, 2015 | Author: | Filed under: Cankler Science News | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on Scientists Discover New Volcanic Eruption Trigger

Scientists Discover New Volcanic Eruption TriggerScientists say they’ve found a new way to predict when a volcano is about to erupt. Simply; after a measurable pressure drop occurs within a volcano’s internal plumbing, an eruption is likely to follow.

This pressure drop can potentially be used by volcanologists to predict a catastrophic eruption. The researchers say the importance is quite significant, particularly if you are part of a community that lives next door to a volcano, or an airline company mapping flight routes.

The study is hoping to engineer early warning systems so that people can be told with a huge degree of confidence when to get out of the way.

Lead author Dr Janine Kavanagh from the University of Liverpool said with more than 600 million people worldwide living near a volcano at risk of eruptive activity, it is more important than ever that triggering mechanisms are made more accurate. This previously unrecognised trigger could also alleviate the “headache” volcanic eruptions cause civil aviation by providing early and accurate warnings to authorities when they should divert aircraft.

“There is also a strong economic incentive to understand the causes of volcanic activity as demonstrated in 2010 by the eruption of Eyjafjallajökull, Iceland, causing air-traffic disruption across Europe for more than a month, and an estimated $A2.5 billion loss in revenue to the airline industry ::Read the full article »»»»


Exploding Star Provides Clue on How Dark Matter Warps Light

Exploding star provides hint on how dark matter warps light in the universe
An exploding star has been seen by astronomers four separate times as a result of dark matter affecting the image, an Australian researcher has revealed.

A team of international scientists studying space using the Hubble Telescope found a supernova explosion appeared multiple times in different places due to the impact of gravitation on light :: Read the full article »»»»
